Question
our cat has flu.
can we give it antihistamines and antibiotics as in adult if yes in which form should they be given.
thanks-sed

Answer
No
You should not give your cat medicine that has not been prescribed for him by a vet they can be very harmful.

With cat flu the main consideration is to make sure he does not become dehydrated.

I have a web page about this condition here

hope he is better soon
